DOES IT PAY TO ESTABLISH AND BUILD UP COLLEGES?
"Planting colleges and filling them with studious young men and
women is planting seed corn for the world." — Adoniram Judson.
A college that makes a "glorious union of the highest learning with
the deepest piety, is a light to lighten the nations and the glory of our
Israel." — George W. Eaton.
Is a College Education Helpful to Success in Business Life?
"My own class in Harvard College numbered eighty-nine at gradu-
ation. Eleven of that number, or one-eighth of the whole, have at-
tained remarkable success in business. * * * In eastern
Massachusetts graduates of Harvard get greatly more than their numer-
ical proportion of the best places in banking, insurance, transportation
and manufacturing. * * I speak from no little personal obser-
vation when I say that there is no more striking general fact about the
graduates of Harvard during the past fifty years than their eminent suc-
cess in business. From one-fifth to one-third of the members of the
successive graduating classes ultimately go into business. The same is
probably true of many another American college." — President Elliott
of Harvard University.
Will It Pay to Send the Girls to College?
"Hardly a week passes that fathers and mothers and teachers do
not ask me whether it will pay to send some bright, ambitious girl to
college. There is but one answer : If civilization pays, if education is
not a mistake, if hearts and brains and souls are more than the dress
they wear, then, by every interest dear to a Christian republic, by all
the hope we have of building finer characters than former generations
have produced, give the girls the widest and the highest and the deepest
education we have dreamed of, and then regret that it is not better,
broader and deeper. The civilization of the Anglo-Saxon race in Amer-
ica depends upon the education physical, mental, moral and social of
the women for the next fifty years." — Alice Freeman Palmer.

THE COURSES OF STUDY
The courses of study offered in the Literary department are the
Classical, the Scientific, the Normal, the Literary and the Business
courses. They are given in full on the following pages. Attention is
called to the fact that the principle of ELECTIVE STUDIES is here
offered in its best form — a choice between courses of study. These
courses have been marked out with great care and are believed to be
fully equal, in the ground they cover, to similar courses in the very best
schools of the United States. McMinnville College does not claim to
be a university; it is a college, and here offers choice courses of study
in those subjects that legitimately belong to the college.
The aim of the college is to give such discipline of the mental
powers as is essential to the highest success in business life, and at the
same time to give a fair mastery of the branches that are here taught.
To-day hundreds who expect to enter business life, as well as those who
are looking toward the professions, are anxious to secure the broadest
culture and the most thorough mental training. A brief description of
the courses of study is here presented :
The Classical Course gives a prominent place to Greek, Latin and
Mathematics. A thorough study of mathematics is universally
recognized as of the highest value. The Latin and Greek languages
are unsurpassed store houses of intellectual strength. This course also
furnishes opportunity for the study of French, German, Literature,
History, Psychology and Philosophy.
The Scientific Course retains the mathematics and Latin of the
Classical course, but offers special advantages in the sciences and the
modern languages. Chemistry, Botany, Physics, Zoology, Geology
and Astronomy are given a prominent place during the last three years
of the course. Text-books are used, but many experiments are given
and much work done outside of the text-book. It is believed that this
course as now offered is deserving of the heartiest patronage, and is
especially recommended to prospective students.
... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE ..
The Normal Course differs from the Scientific in that professional
studies hold a prominent place in the senior year. The aim of this
course is to give both mental discipline and professional knowledge
together with such a mastery of the branches here studied as will fit the
teacher for the highest position in public school work. The second
and third-rate positions in public school work are overcrowded, but
there is a strong and increasing demand for thoroughly equipped
teachers. The course here offered is not a short and easy course. It
will require four years of hard work to complete it. Teachers who
expect to secure and hold prominent and well-paid positions in the
public school, cannot afford to take a shorter course than this. Those
completing either the Classical, Scientific, or the Normal course will be
eligible to the state diploma as provided for by the legislature of 1891.
The Literary Course is a carefully prepared course that can be
completed in three years, and is offered to those who are not able to
remain in school a longer time. It gives a fair amount of Latin and
mathematics, and furnishes a considerable knowledge of the sciences
The Business Course offers a superior business education. "What-
ever may be your choice of a business pursuit, it should be remembered
that the better you are qualified for it, the more likely you will be to
succeed in it. It is a fact which cannot have escaped the notice of
anyone who has given the matter any thought, that those who are the
best educated for their business calling (other things being equal)
invariably take the highest positions." These sentences from the pen
of a prominent business man deserve the careful study of the youth of
to-day. It is beyond dispute that a thorough business education is a
prerequisite to eminent success in business life. Such an education
cannot be obtained without close application and persistent study, and
it cannot be obtained in a few short months. The course here offered
requires two years of hard study to complete it, but it is none too
thorough for those to master who expect to take prominent positions in
... McMINNVILLB COLLEGE ...
To enter the Classical, Scientific, Normal, or Literary course,
students will be required to pass a satisfactory examination in the
studies of the College Preparatory course found on Page 16, or to furnish
satisfactory evidence that they have fairly mastered these branches.
Especial attention is called to the fact that the mastery of the common
branches lies at the basis of all successful work in the studies pursued
in the college course. Students deficient in reading, spelling, arith-
metic and English grammar, will be especially crippled in higher
branches, if allowed to enter upon them. To students who are deficient
in any of the common branches, the College Preparatory course
offers superior advantages under teachers of ability and wide experience.
Many students are so situated that they cannot see their way to take
a regular course. To such students the best of advantages are offered
to take such studies as they are fitted to pursue. Such students will
have just as thorough instruction and just as good opportunities in
every respect as those taking a regular course. Attention, however, is
called to the fact that as a rule students receive more benefit by entering
upon a regular course, even if they cannot see # their way to complete
The degree of Bachelor of Science is conferred upon those who
complete the Scientific course; that of Bachelor of Literature, upon
those who complete either the Classical or the Normal course, and a
certificate of graduation, upon those who complete the Literary or the
... McMlNNVlLLE COLLEGE ...
TRAINING OF TEACHERS
The demand for college graduates to fill the best salaried positions
in the public schools is increasing year by year. The day is close at
hand when thousands of teachers must secure a better preparation for
their work, or be crowded out by the better equipped teachers our
colleges are educating. The public school is widening its course of
study; one branch after another is added; it does not take the eye of a
prophet to see that the elements of the various sciences are soon to be
taught in the common school. All this means that the successful
teacher must have a much more extensive education than most teachers
to-day possess. To encourage college graduates to enter public school
work, state legislatures are granting them state diplomas; a privilege
until recently granted only to Normal schools. McMinnville College
in its Normal course offers superior advantages to those who are to
make teaching a specialty. That course is a thorough one but none too
thorough for those who expect to be eminently successful in public
Be it enacted by the legislative assembly of the State of Oregon,
That all persons who shall complete a required course of study and
receive a literary degree therefor in any institution of learning of
collegiate or university grade, chartered or incorporated under
the laws of this state, and shall have passed such examination
thereon as may be approved by the State Board of Education, shall be
entitled to receive a State Diploma, as is now authorized by law, and
after six years of successful teaching in the State of Oregon, shall be
entitled to the State Life Diploma, as now provided by law, when they
shall have paid the required fee for said diploma.
Six members of the senior class were applicants for the State
Diploma in harmony with this law and all were successful.

BASIS OF WORK AND SUBJECTS COVERED
The courses of study as outlined above will be followed as closely as
the best interest of each student justifies. Our work is planned on the
basis of twenty recitations a week for each student, with a minimum
preparation of an hour and a half of hard study for each recitation. In
addition to this, each student is expected to spend an average of two
hours a week in vocal music, English composition, elocution and direct
preparation for the Philergian society. To our utpmost ability, consist-
ent with the highest advantages of the students as a body, the principle
of allowing each student to complete the course as rapidly as thorough-
ness allows, will be put into practice. Students so lame in common
branches as to hinder their progress in higher studies; students who
cannot get at least seven hours a day for hard study; students whose
health does not permit them to do that amount of study; students who
wish to give special attention to music or elocution, will be allowed to
take fifteen recitations a week instead of twenty. This principle of
allowing each student to go as rapidly as is consistent with thoroughness
of work, has been under discussion for several years. More and more
has our experience convinced us that the best interests of the students
as individuals and as a body will be subserved by carrying this principle
into practice, although it may add to the work of the teachers. They,
however, are a unit in undertaking to put this principle into practice.
A sufficiently definite idea of the subjects covered can be obtained
by showing the amount required to complete the scientific course. To
graduate from this course the following work is required : in mathe-
matics, Wentworth's High School Arithmetic, Wentworth's Higher
Algebra, Wentworth's Plane and Solid Geometry, Trigonometry and
Surveying; in Latin, Harper's Beginning Book, four books of Caesar,
six orations of Cicero, six books of Virgil, two books of Livy, and one
term in Horace; Ahn's Course in German and 200 pages of German
literature; Ahn's Course in French and 400 pages of French literature;
ten terms' work in the sciences, using the text-books noticed elsewhere,
but also doing a large amount of laboratory work; President Brownson's
Notes on English and American Literature are made the basis of four
terms' work, the class reading widely from English and American
literature, and studying carefully the leading biographical notices of the
great writers and criticisms of their works; General History, Political
Economy and Psychology occupy four terms of work. It is at once
seen that this is a superior course, requiring faithful work by students
well prepared to enter it, if it is completed in four years.
... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE ...
COLLEGE PREPARATORY COURSE
Many students desiring the advantages of the college are not far
enough advanced to enter the regular college classes. For the benefit
of such students, a College Preparatory course of two years is offered.
Some of the studies of this course are common school studies. It is
confidently believed, however, that many students would save a full
year of valuable time by entering this course as soon as they are fitted
to do so. The decided majority of students ought to be ready to enter
college at least a year earlier than they do enter. The trouble is that
they have spent three years in doing work that they ought easily to
have done in two. The average student who has had good advantages
ought to be able to enter this two years course at the age of fourteen,
then two years later enter the college course and graduate from it at
twenty. Recognizing the importance of a thorough preparation as
essential to the highest success in college, no pains will be spared to
make this preparatory course one of the highest value.

ENGLISH COMPOSITION AND ELOCUTION
Under the present administration it has been the aim of the college
to give more attention year by year to these important subjects. To
know how to express thought upon paper clearly, forcibly and elegantly
is a great accomplishment. To be able to speak before an audience
with grace and power is an attainment of no less value. Democratic
institutions especially encourage these powers of the mind to their
fullest development. The success of the college in teaching these
branches is the highest encouragement to give more attention to them
year by year than we have yet been able to do. During the present
year more attention has been given this subjects than in any preceding
year of the college, and there is fair prospect that during the coming
year a still more systematic study of these subjects will receive careful
attention. During the Freshman and Sophomore years, special atten-
tion w r ill be given to the culture and management of the voice and to
articulation, enunciation and emphasis. During the Junior year special
attention w T ill be given to the preparation and delivery of orations, and
the feature of the Senior year in this department will be the delivery of
written and extemporaneous debates.
A large amount of elocutionary drill is given free of charge to all
students who desire it; especially in preparation for the society and the
Friday night entertainments. In addition to this and in addition to
the regular classes that may be organized in elocution, special classes
will be organized whenever there are several students who desire to
enter such classes and to pay a small tuition fee for this extra work. In
connection with the work in elocution, special attention, with marked
success, has been given to grace in gesture and movement. This import-
ant phase of elocution will receive still more attention the coming year.
18 ... McMINNVlLLE COLLEGE ...
THE MUSICAL DEPARTMENT
Recognizing that the fine arts are an important element in mental
culture, and that attainments in instrumental and vocal music are of
great practical value to young men and women, special effort has been
put forth, with marked success, to make the musical department of this
college one of the best in the state. While the aim has been to secure
the most efficient teaching that can be secured, it has also been the
desire of the institution to make the tuition as low as possible, in order
that those of limited means may avail themselves of the advantages
that are offered. Superior instruction in vocal music in classes is
offered at merely a nominal tuition. The value of the voice culture
that is thus secured cannot be overestimated. Its value is seen not only
in singing but in public speaking as well.
All pupils, whether they study instrumental or vocal music, should
enter the department of sight-reading. The ability to read music at
sight lies at the basis of a true musical education. Very few among the
thousands who are studying music are able to read even plain hymn
tune correctly at sight, consequently labor under great disadvantage.

Inquiry is often made as to the cost of sending a student to this

room a student occupies and whether two students room together. The
following table covers all the necessary expenses except for lessons in
elocution or music : highest lowest

In addition to this, each student ought by all means to join the
Philergian society, which will cost some $2 or $3 a year. Each student
is also advised to join the Misssonary society which costs seventy-
five cents a year. Each student is also advised to take either elocution
or music lessons. This extra expense is money well spent. Counting
in these extra expenses, and the entire cost of a year need not exceed
$200, and in most cases need not reach that sum. At these figures,
any young man or woman of good health ought not to hesitate a
single minute about obtaining a college education.
... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE ... 21
McMinnville College is located just outside the city limits of
McMinnville, Oregon. McMinnville is easily accessible from every part
of the North Pacific coast, being situated on the Southern Pacific rail-
road, west side division, 50 miles south of Portland. From all points
south there is direct connection, by the way of Albany and Corvallis, or
by stage from Salem to McCoy and thence by the Southern Pacific to
McMinnville ; or from all points east and north there is direct connection
by way of Portland.
BUILDING AND GROUNDS
The College has a campus of 30^ acres, admirably adapted for the
purpose and beautiful for situation. Upon this campus there was built
in 1882 one of the finest buildings for educational purposes to be found
on the Pacific coast. The building is 106 feet in length, 79 in breadth,
and four stories in height. The basement story contains accommoda-
tions for a boarding department; the second affords a commodious chapel ,
president's rooms, class rooms, etc.; the third and fourth, recitation
rooms, library, a number of eligible rooms for students, and Philergian
hall. During the present year an observatory has been erected and a
fine telescope mounted. It is an equatorial; good authority claims it to
be the best instrument north of Mt. Hamilton. It has already given a
new impetus to the study of the sciences.
Self-government is the ideal at McMinnville College. Students are
expected to conform to the usages of good society, and to conduct them-
selves as they would in a refined, well-ordered home. Only those who
are willing to do so are desired as pupils. No set of rules to cover all
cases can be laid down. A high moral sense is necessary to guide a
student in a society like this. If a student does not have this and it
cannot be developed in him, his parents will be notified, after a due
trial, to remove him from the school. This is not a reform school;
young men are expected to give evidence of manhood, and young
women of womanhood.

The library has grown steadily, year by year, and is now recognized
as one of the best college libraries on the Pacific coast, although many
new books are imperatively needed. Valuable additions of nearly ioo
volumes have been made the last year. The books have also
been rearranged and classified so as to greatly facilitate their use. We
look to the friends of the college for help to make the library still
better. We need additions in history, English literature, biography
and science especially.
THE READING ROOM
A partial list of the papers and magazines in the reading room this
year is the following : The Examiner, Standard, Christian Herald,
Pacific Baptist, Baptist Teacher, Baptist Union, Epworth Herald,

Review, Review of Reviews, Missionary Review, Edinburg Review,
Chautauquan, Educational Review, School Review, Forum, Atlantic

these will be in the reading room the coming year. Contributions to
this room are solicited.
... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE ... 23
The Philergian Society, composed of young ladies and gentlemen,
meets regularly each Saturday evening. The exercises, consisting of
singing, essays, debates, recitations, orations, declamations, etc., are of
great value to the students. The special feature of the society is its
debates upon vital questions of the day.
The Missionary Society holds a public meeting once a month.
During the present year these meetings have been held the third
Sunday afternoon, and have been full of interest.
There is also a Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. These hold meetings
regularly for the study of the Bible and for religious culture. These
meetings have proved to be of great benefit to many students, encourag-
ing them in christian work and fitting them for larger usefulness in
after years. ,
AID TO STUDENTS
It is the aim of the college to assist worthy students in every way
possible. The only way at present of rendering financial assistance is
by furnishing work. During the present year several young men have
earned a considerable part of their expenses in this way. The college
can help students the coming year considerably by giving them work in
improving the campus. Application for work should be made to the
president at an early day and accompanied by suitable references. To
a very limited extent, appeals have been made to friends and churches
to assist young men studying for the ministry and young women fitting
themselves for missionary service. Such persons are especially invited
to correspond with the president. Special efforts will hereafter be put
forth to assist such students of approved ability and fitness during the
junior and senior years. Quite a number of students each year obtain
work in the vicinity of the college. Several young women each year get
opportunity to work for their board in private families.
24 ... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE ...
ROOMS AND BOARD
The College Club was organized at the beginning of the year. It
is under the general supervision of the president of the college. The
aim is to furnish board at approximate cost. The price of table board
is guaranteed not to exceed $2.50 per week. One feature of the club is
that everything is purchased for cash. Buying in large quantities for
cash, better board can be offered at $2.50 a week than a private family
could afford to give at the same price. On the third floor of the col-
lege building are rooms for a limited number of boys. The president's
living rooms are on the first floor. On the same floor are rooms for a
limited number of girls. Most of the rooms are unfurnished, except
with a stove. Students wishing furnished rooms are requested to notify
the president in advance. All of the rooms have high ceilings and large
windows, and so are superior for ventilation and light. Furnished
rooms can be obtained at reasonable price within a few minutes walk of
the college. Quite a number of students club together and rent a house
and board themselves, thus saving a large part of the expense. Room
and board at private families ranges from $3.25 to $4.50 a week.
Regular attendance at chapel service, at recitations, faithful
observance of study hours and payment of all damages to furniture and
building. The use of tobacco in the building or on the college grounds,
and the visiting of any saloon or billiard hall, are forbidden.
Are held from time to time, occupying the time of the regular
recitation. As a rule examinations are also held at the close of each
term; sometimes at the close of a study only, when it comes near the
end of a term. All recitations and examinations are marked on a scale
of 100, and an average of 80 is required before passing from one class to
another. An accurate record of the standing of each student is
preserved, both of recitations and examinations. Reports will be sent
to parents or guardians on application .

President Brownson has been at the head of the college seven years.
They have been years of steady, encouraging growth. About $12,000
has been added to the permanent endowment; two pianos secured for
the musical department; the college campus greatly improved;
a beginning made toward a laboratory; the library increased from 515 to
1835 volumes; an observatory built and a fine telescope secured and
mounted; the faculty enlarged from three salaried to five salaried
teachers. The regular income has increased each year, it being this
year more than twice as large as it was seven years ago. The needs,
however, have more than kept pace with the growth. In institutions of
learning, growth always creates demand for larger resources. A living
college must have growing needs. The growth of this college makes
enlarged resources a necessity to meet the
These may be briefly stated as follows :
I. Ten thousand dollars added to the permanent endowment.
The income must be increased in the near future. A large deficit in
current expenses has been prevented year by year only by going
without things that were imperatively needed.
II. Ten scholarships of one thousand dollars each. The college
ought not longer to allow promising young men and women to leave
school after they have completed half the college course. Scholarships
are needed that worthy students who have struggled heroically for three
years and paid their own way may be able to complete their courses
here. Who will build a monument by establishing a scholarship?
III. A Woman's Hall. It need not be expensive. Perhaps
$5,000 is all that need be spent in it. Year by year it becomes one of
the most pressing needs of the college. It is the uniform testimony of
other schools that such a building is a wise investment of funds. Is
there not some woman, or some group of women who will at once
become responsible for this building?
It is easy to specify other needs; these have become imperative;
the college ought not to have to wait long for these needs to be met.
One thousand dollars invested in the college now will accomplish larger
results than two thousand a few years hence.

HAVE YOU MADE A WILL
If so, did you remember McMinnville College? If you did not, will
you not reconsider and ask the Lord if it will not be to his glory for you
to change that will? If you have not made a will and are going to do
so, will you not make McMinnville College one of your heirs? Do not
write your own will. Be sure that the correct legal name of the
institution is used.

A WORD TO PARENTS
If you cannot give your sons and daughters anything else, give
them a good education. It may call for self-denial and sacrifice on
your part, but you can well afford to make it. Try and keep them in
school every school day in the year. Then remember that it is of the
utmost importance in what school you educate your sons and daughters.
You cannot afford to educate them in any other than a Christian school.
If you are a Baptist you cannot afford to educate them in any other than
a Baptist school. If you are a Baptist in Oregon why not educate them
in McMinnville College?
